Version 7.1 contains a number of enhancements, improvements and bugfixes from the 7.0 series.
FreeBSD 7.2-Pre

Thanks, I see now: "7.2-Pre" refers to a development point in 7-STABLE prior to 7.2-RELEASE (because that's not released yet), but it's close to.

When FreeBSD 7.2-RELEASE is out, maybe the PC-BSD developers offer a minor upgrade for the "OS part" of their system to catch up to the FreeBSD release.
